My husband and I stayed in the Turret Room of the Alexander Hamilton House for a one night "vacation" in the Hudson River Valley and enjoyed both the Inn and the location. It was close to Sleepy Hollow where we toured Rockefeller's Kykuit mansion as well as the Stone Church with stained glass windows by Matisse and Chagall. It was also within walking distance of the village of Croton-on-the-Hudson so that we could enjoy supper at Justin Thyme without having to take the car out. Tom, the host of the Inn, cooked us a lovely breakfast that we enjoyed with 2 other couples which made for very pleasant and informative conversation. Then Tom directed us to nearby parks where we could take a long walk and enjoy the sights along the east bank of the Hudson River. Our room was comfortable but we couldn't get the TV to work and so went downstairs to the common room to watch the Vice-Presidential debates which we didn't want to miss! We would have paid just about the same price for staying in a chain motel but wouldn't have enjoyed the same homey atmosphere or personal service.
